Program slicing is a useful analysis for aiding different software engineering activities. In the past decades, various notions of program slices have been evolved as well as a number of methods to compute them. By now program slicing has numerous applications in software maintenance, program comprehension, reverse engineering, program integration, and software testing. Usability of program slicing for real world programs depends on many factors such as precision, speed, and scalability, which have already been addressed in the literature. However, only a little attention has been brought to the practical demand: when the slices are large or difficult to understand, which often occur in the case of larger programs, how to give an explanation for the user why a particular element has been included in the resulting slice. This paper describes a reasoning method about elements of static program slices.
